defiant restriction in the wake of the newtown, connecticut, shootings. instead, the nra is calling forearmed security guards at every school, every school in the country. cnn's tom foreman is joining us now. you were at that speech that wayne lap ichlt erre gave announcing the reaction of what happened a week ago today. tell our viewers how it went. >> well, as you know, they kept a very low profile but today they came out to say they had some things to say and they sure did. despite protesters, the president and public opinion increasingly pushing against the gun lobby, the national rifle association sent a sharp message to wayne la pierre. no retreat. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. i call on congress today to act immediately to appropriate whatever is necessary to put armed police officers in every single school in this nation. >> in a wide-ranging statement, lapierre condemned the shootings in connecticut and other places but accused congress of relying on armed guards in congress while calling other actions inappropriate elsewhere. >
that is the debate that is going to rage, especially after that nra presser today in washington. but for this town, for this moment, for this day, it is not about that. it is very important, but it is about the people and the victims and remembering them and commemorating them in beautiful ways just like this one, brooke. >> absolutely, poppy harlow, thank you so much for us in newtown. wasn't thrill a presser the nra gave, a statement, no questions answered afterward. the nra also held a moment of silence at 9:30 this morning today for the 20 children and the 6 adults slaughtered last friday in newtown schoolhouse. but hours later, the nra spelled out its own plan to prevent similar massacres in the future. the message from wayne lapierre, put guns in every school now. >> and does anybody really believe that the next adam lanza isn't planning his attack on a school, he's already identified at this very moment? how many more copycats are waiting in the wings for their moment of fame? the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. i call on congress today to act immediatel
the nra has been chastened by it. the whole gang is here, ana kasparian, michael shure, ben mankiewicz. so at least they have suspended their twitter account--wow. they're not on facebook any more. apparently they feel a little embarrassed. and when meet the press asked 31 of the most pro gun rights senators to come on this sunday, none of them agreed to come on. it's nice to know that they're slightly embarrassed at the fact that they have the wrong position, and their position led to a lot more people being killed. during the election the nra was not embarrassed at all. they ran ads like this against obama. >> in the debate obama slipped up and revealed his real plan. >> part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced. >> obama's national gun ban would outlaw common rifles including rifles used by law abideing citizens for hunting target shooting and self defense, and obama even opened the door to a handgun ban the same obama who backed bans against handguns. he's targeting gun owners. defend freedom. defeat obama. >> cenk: almost none that have was true. back in i
say the nra uses money, power, scare tactics to hold lawmakers hostage to the agenda opposing gun regulations. i want to bring in richard painter and the law professor of minnesota and joining us from minneapolis who wrote an opinion piece, an op ed in "the new york times," and a protection racket where people are controlled by organized criminals, corrupt politicians. when you hear the head of the nra today say that gun laws are not the answer it really is arming people, arming somebody in that school that could have saved lives, what is your response? >> well, we -- of course, should focus on mental health issues. we should have fewer violent movies and video games and have better security in our schools, but nothing is going to change the fact that the last thing those children saw if they looked up, and i hope they didn't, is the end of a weapon manufactured by his financial backers. lapierre says if one of those teachers had a weapon they could have killed the gunman and could have saved lives and that was the potential outcome had there been someone armed in that school. >>
there in newtown on friday morning. i'll read it to our viewers from the nra. the nra is made up of four million moms and dads, be sons and daughters, and we were shocked, saddened, and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in newtown. out of respect for the families and as a matter of common decency, we have given time for a mourning, prayer and full investigation of thes before commenting. the nra is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure that this never happens. that's the first public statement since the killings here in newtown friday morning. the nra also says it will hold a major news conference this coming friday, december 21st, in washington, d.c. of course, we'll cover that as well. >>> there has been another deadly shooting in colorado. police say four people are dead in a murder-suicide. lisa sylvester is monitoring that. what do you have, lisa? >> wolf, it's a disturbing story of a woman's 911 strategy. it happened in colorado. authorities say as the call for help came in, a dispatcher heard gunshots, a man saying he was going to kill hi
nra offices here in washington. she's in the newsroom with more on what they are saying today. kristin? >> reporter: what they're saying is they want a ban on the sale of all assault rifles to people like you and me. they want them to only be in the hands of the military and police. it's something we have heard so many times before. but they're hoping what happened in connecticut is going to be the game changer for gun control in this country. >> i've got four grandkids. they're all the age of those kids up in newtown, connecticut. i don't want my kids to end up like them. >> reporter: earl mitchell is a retired lieutenant commander in the navy, served 28 years. yet today he's marching to the nra's headquarters on capitol hill with this message. >> let's stop all the assault weapons. >> reporter: he's joined by other vets, parents, and teachers like karen martinez. >> i'm here because i'm tired of lighting candles and crying and praying for victims of violent crimes. and i want to do something. >> shame on the nra. shame on the nra. >> reporter: but mid-march they hear this. arm the te
a correction to make, earlier in the show when i said if you ask nra members that they believe if people have to pass a background check in this country before buying a firearm, i said 57% of members said yes to it. it is actually 74% of members who want a background check that want -- 74, not 57, sorry about that, we switched up our slides on that. here on nbc, our continuing coverage of the mass shooting, this massacre at sandy hook elementary school will continue now into the night. live from newtown, with chris jansing, please stay with us. >> reporter: 28 people dead in the nation's latest shooting massacre, but this time, the horror is at an elementary school. this is msnbc's live coverage of the shooting in newtown, connecticut. the first call for help came just after 9:30. >> the school shooting at an elementary school in fairfield county, connecticut. >> reporter: it is a small town, holiday lights are up everywhere. >> a young man wearing black. >> he entered the school, he was wearing all black. >> armed with at least two weapons, carrying two handguns and hundreds of rounds of amm
want this. the other thing that is i think, important, is that people talk about the power of the nra. but when you look at the election results that happened this november, the nra had a terrible season. i mean, my home state of virginia they really spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to knock off tim kaine, who is a big supporter of gun laws. they were not able to do that. they went after tammy baldwin, and of course they went after the president. everybody believes we should have reasonable gun laws. what is standing in the way is the nra leadership. we need to push them aside. it is not difficult. the nra is a paper tiger. it is time to get this done, the time is now, the day's events just showed what must happen in this country. >> congresswoman, we have talked over the last several months about how there have been shifts on so many issues, many of them social issues, for example, gay marriage. that it does seem as if legislation is sort of catching up with public opinion, is that what is happening here? and is there a way to push it forward from your perspective? >> well, i h

've seen protests outside the nra offices here in washington. the national rifle association so far largely silent on this, even online. their facebook page, their twitter feed, nothing since the shootings. but there are nra supporters not only gun control advocates on the hill but even long-time nra supporters who are rethinking assault weapons. >> we need to accept the reality that we're not doing enough to protect our citizens. >> i don't know of anybody that goes hunting with an a saumt rifle. i don't know anybody that needs those types of multiple clips as far as ammunition. >> now, the washington post has a new poll out done over the weekend after the shootings. they found that the majority of americans, 54%, say they favor tougher laws. but even more than that, seven out of ten don't want to see a ban on handguns. eun in. >>> tracie potts live on capitol hill this morning. tracie, thank you. >>> this morning, this could be a crucial day in the effort to avoid the fiscal cliff. house speaker john boehner will update his fellow republicans on ongoing negotiations with president obama.
staunch members, staunchly backed by the nra are united in their grief and say they want change to happen, but will it? >> erin, sometimes it takes tragedy to make us confront reality. you are starting to see politicians on both sides of the aisle say maybe now is not the time to rely on ideology or partisan politics put to start taking a long look at the laws that exist around guns. not infringing on the second amendment, but taking a look at what reasonable restrictions can be put in place. in the last 24 hours, two leading southern democratic leaders, joel manchin and mark warner, said this event has changed them and they're open to new solutions. let's take a look at what m manchin told christine amanpour. >> who would think that children in america or anyone would be slaughtered? it changed me. i don't know of anyone who goes hunting with an assault rifle. i don't know people who need 10, 20, 30-round clips. >> i believe every american has a second amendment right and the ability to hunt is part of our culture. i had an nra rating of an "a," but you know, enough is enough. >> so, eri
quote. the nra is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters, and we were shocked, sad, heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in newtown. the nra is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again. nra saying it will hold a news conference on friday, one week to the day after the school shootings. martha: and the gun industry itself is facing an extreme backlash as a result of all of this and it is feeling it in the bottom lines. shares of major gun makers have dropped in the wake of the sandy hook shootings and the owner of the company that makes one of the weapons used in that tragedy says that they have decided to get out of the gun business. interesting developments here that reverberate all the way to wall street. stuart varney is the anchor of "varney & company" on the fox business network. stuart, how is tall this playing out in these companies? >> martha, there is a long list of backlash developments. start with this. cheaper than dirt.com, one of the largest internet gun sellers just announced it is
debate, the nra hasn't made any public statement. the country's largest gun rights organization has since taken down its facebook page and went silent on the social media scene. cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> for more on bay area gun buy- back programs and continuing coverage off the school tragedy go to cbssf.com. >>> happening right now, owners of a game stop shop in concord are cleaning up after a car drove into it. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington is at the clayton valley shopping center with all the details. good morning, elissa. >> reporter: good morning. definitely a brazen burglary here. you can see behind me the gamestop has been boarded up and workers have come in to clean up and try and get things back together so that they can open today. now, what happened is that thieves crashed their car into the building and then stole thousands of dollars worth of merchandise. you're looking at a picture from shortly after that happened around 4 a.m. now, employees say that they were alerted by an alarm when they arrived police were already here. and they found that car into the building. but t
that will strike fear in the hearts of folks at the nra because they, when he was senator biden, gave him an "f" on his pro-gun rights policies and said in 2008, few in the senate have as much experience as biden in attacking our right to keep and bear arms. they will not like the choice. but it does appear they are now going to take a serious look at, what, another assault weapons ban? what do you think is likely to come out of this? >> what was interesting in the president's press conference he was actually fairly specific what he hopes to get out of this task force. he says, it was clear it wasn't a commission. i think people who are speculating the president is using this biden task force to sort of get out of having to do implement serious gun control measures or doing kinds of things the president suggested he would do in his speech in newtown on sunday night are just wrong. i think the president is still eager to move urgently and i think the picking of vice president biden suggests that but he was fairly specific. he talked about reinstating an assault weapons ban. the president talked
